Northwest Recovery Symposium

When the social and cultural needs of individuals, families, and communities are supported by understanding, empowerment, and enhanced knowledge, big changes can happen. Throughout the Pacific Northwest, big changes ARE happening. Thanks to members of the Recovery Community, Recovery Service Providers, and Recovery Advocates, we are proud to offer our First Northwest Recovery Symposium in conjunction with our Focus on the Future Conference.

With the theme of Forward-Focused Action, the Northwest Recovery Symposium brings together grass-roots organizations, community leaders, prevention and treatment providers, and strong, empowered voices of recovery to share those changes as we look to the future. Featured topics include Standing up to Stigma; The Hope of Recovery Among Active Duty Military and Veterans; Recovery Advocacy; Co-occurring Challenges and Multiple Definitions of Recovery; Untangling Limiting Beliefs; Recovery Services in Tribal Communities; Harm Reduction Pathways; and Self-Compassion and Self-Acceptance – and many more.

We hope these two days will be full days – and fulfilling days – of learning, sharing, networking, and building partnerships that will help you create Forward-Focused Action.

Welcome!
